CrossReference (Episode 3)

Resources Collection cover image

A few weeks ago I introduced you to a series of short films that focus on Christ’s appearances in the Old Testament as the Angel of the Lord. Every Wednesday for 10 weeks I will be posting a new episode right here at the blog. This will allow you to view the series in its entirety. Do note, though, that each episode will be available for only one week.

This week’s episode is a day late. I’ve been running around like a mad man here at the Gospel Coalition conference. I had hoped to shoot some video and do other fun things. It hasn’t happened. I’ve just been going from meeting to meeting and spending time hanging out with people I only see every year or two. So that made this video fall from yesterday until today. It’s also meant that A La Carte has disappeared. So I apologize for that. Things should return to normal tomorrow.

Back to the video…

After the week is up you will need to purchase the series. Here’s how you can do that. The DVD and Study Guide (sample here) are available for pre-order, and will be launched at The Gospel Coalition Conference Preaching Christ from the Old Testament on April 12. However, you can buy the digital download of the whole series here for $5. Or visit Ligonier’s online store for the download or to pre-order the DVD and Study Guide.

This episode is titled “The Well of the Living Sight.”

David Murray is Professor of Old Testament and Practical Theology at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He was a pastor in Scotland for 12 years before coming to Grand Rapids in 2007 with his wife Shona and their four children. He blogs regularly at Head Heart Hand.

    How Can You Mumble?

    Some of my most meaningful moments of public worship have been in settings where I did not speak the language. I have stood with a congregation in rural Zambia as they’ve clapped and moved and praised the Lord in Bemba, a language that is utterly unknown to me. I’ve sat with a congregation in the…

    A Celebration of Friendship

    I may not be going too far out on a limb when I suggest that you have probably not heard the name Anna Laetitia Barbauld. For various reasons she has been largely forgotten by history, and this despite achieving a significant level of fame in the eighteenth century. Though at one time she was a…
